Let me start this off by saying that I don’t believe any team has even a remote chance of dethroning the Golden State Warriors. For my own sanity I am going to attempt to make an argument for the Boston Celtics as the team who I believe could make this an interesting season. The Celtics are coming off a hard fought 7-game series versus the Cleveland Cavaliers, who rode into the playoffs on Lebron James’s back.
Boston is retooled and reinvigorated, they are ready to show the NBA that they can ball out and give the Warriors a run for their money. Featuring a stacked lineup that will most likely see 20 year old Jayson Tatum coming off the bench. This man dropped almost 19 ppg in the playoffs, AS A ROOKIE! If Boston can bring back Kyrie and Hayward and not experience too much turbulence with them rejoining the game plan -- then this team could be terrifying. I am excited to see if they can actually live up to all this hype. Fingers crossed!
